paign be begun at-once to secure a
vote of the county upon the ques
tion of removing the county seat
from Canyon City to Prairie City,
at the coming June election.
Committees were appointed to
canvass among those who would be
most benefited by the change for
funds with which to defray the ex
penses of building a courthouse free
of cost to the taxpayers and to
build and place in good repair the
public roads leading into Prairie
City, independent of the regular
county tax funds. Five represen
tative citizens of the town who were
present at the meeting volunteered
to give $1000 for this purpose, and
it is learned that several others
have subscribed a like amount each
since that time.
The committees report rapid
progress in securing the necessary
subscriptions, and expect to be aide
to report the required amount with
in a short time.
Other committees will be ap
pointed as soon as this feature of
the work is satisfactorily provided
for, and the matter will not be al
lowed to rest until the last ballot
has been counted and the county
seat location won or lost.
In order to bring the matter to a
vote it is necessary to present a pe
tition to the county court. This
petition must be signed by at least
three-fourth as many voters as there
was votes cast at the last proceed
ing election. County'Judge Mc-
Haley says he so understands the
present laws; but these laws do not
state the length of time the petition
must be presented to tho court be
fore the election.
In Canyon City the news of the
movement to take the county seat
from that town has caused a great
deal of general discussion, but no
public recognition of it has so far
been taken. It is certain, however,
that a fierce fight will lie made by
the business and professional men
to retain the location, and as prac
tically all the legal talent in the
couty is gathered at the present
county capital the defensive opera
tions will be well directed and vig
